I have a camera parented to an animated curve (CTRL+P). I want to slow and stop the camera's speed at various points along the curve. The curve has a generator modifier (which is why I cannot keyframe the Evaluation Time in the Object Data tab) and I'm using the Restrict Frame Range parameters to delay the start of the path animation to frame 60. When I set the Out parameter for the frame at which I want the camera to pause movement, it jumps back to the beginning of the curve. Is there a way to pause movement along a curve while still using Restrict Frame Range parameters to delay the start of the path animation or must I "hard keyframe" each camera location? Please say there's an easier way!
Parenting the camera to a path gives you very little control on the camera motion. Use a follow path constraint instead, and animate the offset value.
Use camera keyframes instead of follow path. Use LocRotScale.
